Won a Mystery Weekend here. Joke? The decor is tired, there are finger marks and scrapes all over the reception, there is a loud noise of the outside heating unit throughout the unit, and the view is a huge retaining wall and a big puddle (not the lake!). Feeling let down. Won't be back.

My stay at the hotel was for a business seminar. The hotel is part of the Hilton village nestled on the peaceful banks of Lake Wakatipu. From the moment I checked in to the time I checked in the service and facilties were amazing. There are a number of dining options throughout the complex, each of them offering excellent food...

It is just a little far from the city, but great stay and there is a shuttle to take you there. By the lake and beautiful. Very clean. You can also use the pool from the hilton next door. Try to get a room with a lake view, its very beautiful. Also liked the free cookies on arrival :)

Great place. I was on the 4th floor and only one elevator goes there. The elevator at check in does NOT go to the 4th... no one told me and then their directions were at the least confusing. you have to walk a little distance on the third floor to arrive at the proper elevator.... other than that the grounds...

The hotel includes hotel rooms, property managed condo suites and a slew of good restaurants: Wakapitu Grill, Me Mee .. Hotel is clean, comfort and scenery. The layer of the room is an excellent architectural view: the fully equipped kitchen is seperated from living area. The bedroom is isolated from the bathroom. From the room, one can view the Queenstown...

We were here for only a day but I loved how smiley and friendly the staffs were. The hotel looks pretty new and if its not, they have done a great job maintaining the building. The room we had was definitely clean and refreshing. Its quiet and away from the city- and you will need transportation to get to the...

I've stayed at many DoubleTrees and found this one to be one of the best yet. Location was perfect. Had underground parking and most improtantly a fantastic room for the price. Well layed out with great views. The staff was very helpful and informative. They took good care of us during our stay. Will be coming back to this property!

Stayed for 4 nights in May 2017. Good experience overall - spacious room, excellent staff.. Though the property is a 15 min drive from the town, the hotel offers shuttle taxi (free) and water taxis ($10) to the town center (departing almost every hour). This was a better option for us than driving to Queenstown. Food options were a bit...

We enjoyed a great stay at this hotel. Staff were extremely helpful (especially Lucie) during the entire stay. Shuttles and water taxis made the travel into town very accessible. Would highly recommend.
